Behind the Canvas

Week Three - An Artist's Perspective

Jen Scully

Here we are. Week three of social distancing, working remotely, kids home from school; and all around us, stories of terrible sadness and desperation.  People who are sick, overrun hospitals without supplies, businesses closing, people who can't pay rent.  No definable end in sight, and the potential of cycling through again when this is all over.  When I planned to release my new collection in March, I could never have predicted the climate we live in today.  Let's face it - people are NOT buying art.  People are scared.  The economy is suffering and basic necessities like groceries are the focus of...

Let's Talk about You and Me

Jen Scully

LET'S TALK ABOUT ART BABY... LET'S TALK ABOUT YOU AND ME The past few months have been a time for reflection, thinking about goals, and setting a course of direction.  I've taken a break from painting, cut back on commissions, and I essentially hit the pause button.  A couple of weeks ago I felt ready to start thinking about creating again, but knew I wanted to do it in a way that felt right, not rushed - and true to me.  I committed to working towards a new collection that will be released in early April.  I knew this collection would...
